A couple of weeks ago I told you that I was headed to Minneapolis to attend the Joy of Lighting class sponsored by West Photo and held at the Mpls Photo Center. Tony Corbell, who has teamed up with Bowens at teambowens.com, is an amazing instructor. The first day of the class was mostly classroom slides and discussions about different lighting techniques. Tony also went over the Bowens Gemini 400Rx lights that we received and the equipment that came with them. The second day was almost all hands-on, using the lights and their modifiers to practice and getting used to them. Our model, Anna Maher, was wonderful and very patient with us! Below are a couple of images from the practice sessions. We had three lighting scenarios that we practiced on. One setup used a single strobe and a softbox, the second used a single strobe with just the reflector and the third used three strobes, all with reflectors. The two gentlemen were classmates of mine that were gracious enough to let me photograph them.
